Here, the poet was referring to the period that could not pass patiently after the hair transplant and unfortunately needed time for the newly transplanted hair to grow…
I understand you so well because I also had a hair transplant, even though I was so involved and I knew exactly what was waiting for me, I waited impatiently for my hair to grow out.
We can call that patiently awaited period the ugly duckling period. In this period, which is the healing phase of hair transplantation, we experience crusting, redness, an inhomogeneous appearance and even a process called shock shedding.
The ‘ugly duckling’ stage means different things to different people. It mostly means that after hair loss results begin to appear and a normal appearance begins to take shape. Redness, pimples, and shock hair loss make all these problems worse. I would say the ugly duckling stage is the first 1-2 months right after the hair transplant.
Although most patients are prepared for the crusting and shedding of the transplanted hair, they cannot get used to the appearance seen after 2-4 weeks. They start walking around with question marks if there is any problem and of course write to me.
Hair loss after hair transplantation is an acute process and occurs in the vast majority of patients. Even if we do not realize the reason, it is caused by the trauma of the process he has been through, and secondly, by the effect of DHT, he takes action to survive in this area, which is already deprived of blood supply, and to take action for valuable blood supply. Hold tight, chronic shedding or shock loss is a gradual process and can continue for up to 6 weeks.
The hair will return completely, but when thinning occurs in the planting areas or when the direction is not suitable, you may think that a faulty hair transplant has been made for this possibility. For this reason, I recommend that you do your research well before choosing a hair transplant. I always inform my patients about everything that can and will not happen during the examination. In addition, I share information about what you will experience during the hair transplant process almost every day through social media.
I hear some hair transplant clinics recommend using DHT blockers 3 months before hair transplant. If the patient has miniaturization in the scalp donor area and these drugs are started, this may be a situation that will make the specialist wrong. Because we collect the grafts that we see as healthy and healthy at this stage, and if the patient used DHT blockers, it will be difficult or even impossible to distinguish between miniaturized hair and real quality hair. For this reason, if you want to get through the ugly duckling process better and finally have really natural and healthy hair, you should make sure that you choose the right center. Unnecessary drug use affects the process.
Secondly, this period is temporary, I want to remind you again. A patient dervish will surely achieve his wish.
